Authors Note.

This week’s announcement that News Corp’s revenue has declined for the fourth successive quarter has sent a shiver down the spine of the newspaper industry. It is now in its inevitable death throes. Further cuts will now have to be made in his Australian publications and when the traditional hard core readers have passed on what will be left.

    I will be glad to see The Australian go. I remember the first time it came out during the Vietnam war. It was a revolution in Newspapers. Then it was bought up and changed tack, to steer more and more to the right.
    Now it is just a bit like a Trump, shrill and shouting.

      Thanks for commenting, Gerard.

      Yesterday John Lord publishes a repost of an earlier one:

      You can find it here:

      The post starts like this:
      “Recently I found myself without access to the internet. It only lasted a day and a bit, thankfully, but it did bring home to me just how reliant I am on it. The pause however, did give me reason to think about how very differently I consume information now as opposed to say 10 or so years ago. It also gave me reason to think about what influence old media, and in particular Murdoch newspapers, might have on the next election.

      . . . . . ”

      I ask myself the question, how reliant really are we on the internet?

    If you’re not going to publish honest reliable information the public wants to read, you really have no right to be in the newspaper business.
